Kotak Mahindra Bank on Wednesday announced that its VISA debit and credit cardholders can now make payments via the Google Pay mobile app. Using a process called tokenisation that hides sensitive card information, Kotak customers can now link their Kotak debit and/or credit card to Google Pay and then seamlessly and securely digitally transact using their mobile phones across different payment platforms.
